Water heating

To combine power and performance at very low temperatures

The joys of bathing thanks to a free source of energy


The FAFCO solar heating system ensures that you can enjoy a pleasant swim in water temperatures of 24 to 29°C from spring to autumn, at no cost thanks to free solar energy.

Such a heating system pays for itself very quickly. Warming up a 40 m3 unsheltered swimming pool to 22°C from May to October would otherwise require about 1000 litres of heating oil.

The solar installation is generally integrated into an existing filtration circuit. The hot water is thus transferred by the existing pump, so that heating does not involve additional electricity costs either.

Principle of operation


FAFCO solar collectors consist of hundreds of small tubes welded together, forming a uniformly irrigated panel. The special design of these collector pipes guarantees a regular flow through each capillary and optimum use of each cm².

The surface of the collectors is black, matt, and finely grooved to absorb almost all of the solar energy (95% efficiency).

The FAFCO solar collector is traversed by a large quantity of water and remains relatively cool.

This means maximum absorption of radiation with minimum heat loss. These two points guarantee a high degree of efficiency.

Materials


FAFCO sensors are made 100% from ultra-stabilised polypropylene. They contain no glue and are fully welded.

As a result, they have been recognized as the best in their class in numerous laboratory tests. The black colour comes from a pigment specially prepared for these sensors and integrated into the polymer matrix. It cannot fade or peel off.

In addition, if a sensor needs to be replaced after several years, it can be recycled without harming the environment.

Before leaving our factories, each sensor is thoroughly checked and pressure tested. The panels can be partially dismantled for functional checks.

Customs tariff : 9032.8100
Weight : 1710g
Volume : 25x22x19cm
Positions : ON-AUTOMATIC-OFF
Dimensions : 19x17x10cm

Contents :

  • 1 Regulating device.
  • 1 Solar sensor with 10m cable.
  • 1 Water sensor with 5m cable.

SC 3.1 compares the pool water temperature with the measurement of the solar sensor and switches on the solar system as required. The solar system is thus used in the most efficient way.

The desired temperature can be set between 16° and 36°C using the controller. The status of your system is indicated by LEDs: heating, cooling, setpoint temperature reached. If the outside temperature falls below 5°C, you are warned of the risk of frost.

The other button allows you to switch to manual mode for modifications or work on your installation. Positions: On – Automatic – Off.

Connections :

  • Power supply 230VAC/50Hz.
  • 230VAC/50Hz for a solar pump (max. 1Kw).
  • 24VAC/50Hz for a motorized valve or magnetic valve.
  • Connection terminals for temperature probes
